I assume the only keys available are the keys that CF makes when it
installs. However, I think you can add keys at will, just like in

As for the details, I simply do not know. I _believe_ it is a simple
text file. Shoot, dig it up and vi it and tell me. :) To be honest, if I
were you, I would simply not use the registry, that goes for both Win
and Solaris. It's not because the registry is bad, or bad under ^Win,
but it would be better to use an .ini file, or the db, to store

The above is my 2 cents, not word of Macromedia, etc.
